your Free Weekly Horoscope
for March 17, 2013 — March 23, 2013
Since February 23rd, Mercury has been retrograde in the sign of Pisces, bringing confusion, illusions, delusions and unclear communications. On St. Patrick’s Day, another reason for celebrating arises as Mercury moves forward in the sign of Pisces. Take note that our faculties and manner of communicating will definitely improve within the next few days. This will be a better time to start up projects, and definitely will be a better time for discussing these projects with others.
First Quarter Moon in Gemini occurs on Tuesday, March 19. This is a day of collecting information while we look at both sides of given pictures. Gemini Moon brings the necessity for our moods to be changeable and adaptable throughout the day. Our moods are easily affected by the busy buzz of intellectual focuses and pursuits. The emphasis of covering as many details at once becomes the primary objective, but not necessarily the answer to our insatiable curiosity. Do not let gossip and idle chatter be the cause of disruption in your day. The act of processing information becomes essential and difficult to do accurately. The good news is that the Gemini Moon also brings changeable, adaptable and tolerant moods throughout the day so even though things may not seem to be working just right, it is just a symptom of early spring fever that will feel better after a glass of cheer with your friends and comrades at the local pub!
Wednesday brings the event classically called Vernal Equinox also known as Spring Equinox. The hours of the day are equal in length to the hours of the night. Spring arrives when the earth is tilted so that the Sun is directly over the equator. In the northern parts of the world, the first day of Spring is on or about March 20 as the Sun enters Aries. In the northern hemisphere we are on the side of the Equinox that returns toward the light as opposed to Autumnal Equinox when the Sun enters Libra, the opposite of the sign of Aries. With Daylight Savings Time already underway since March 10th, we now celebrate the continued lengthening of the days.
Venus enters Aries on March 21 and doesn’t leave until April 15. The expression of beauty, love and attraction assumes a fascination for the warrior spirit. Venus in Aries brings out the warrior and conqueror quality in people and a new sense of life and vitality will be evident. There will be an emphasis on ardent, open and forthright expressions and proposals of love, especially from Aries friends who may be blinded by the lust for beauty. Remember, Aries rules the head and there are numerous ways you can use your head before plunging head first into love matters. Though new love is inspired with Venus in Aries, try not to be too militant in the expression of feelings of affection.

Aries: Mars makes a welcome return to your sign and will soon be followed by the Sun that will do wonders for your energy, motivation and confidence. If you’ve been a little out of sorts during the past few weeks, this is the point where you begin to turn a corner. Hopefully, though, you have learned something valuable during recent times, and it may be that you now stand on the verge of wanting to make some changes. It may be that you’re fed up with a certain situation and feel like you either want to break free from it or shake it up into something better. One thing’s for sure: the rebel in you is emerging and you’re no longer going to be content to sit around and put up with things the way they are. Your intuition is still a force to be reckoned with, so follow your impulses and gut feelings, and then allow your returning vigor to push for change.
Taurus: Whether you want to call it luck, good fortune or the results of all your efforts, there is likely to be a successful theme to this week. Perhaps something goes right for you just when you need it to, or maybe you’ll receive some good news or a door will open to a brighter future. It certainly looks as though your path is lined with fairy dust at the moment, so make the most of this celestial good fortune by getting out there and being as positive, warm and open as you can be. You may be lucky enough to meet someone who could be very helpful for you while the chances are high of making a new friend. In fact, this is a really good time to examine your friendships and to focus on creating new friends who share your interests. All your relationships will benefit from your input at the moment and by being more open and loving to others, you will attract new people and improve your existing bonds.
Gemini: If it felt like you were stuck in quicksand during the past week or two, you may be relieved to hear that life gets much easier this week. Mercury resumes his forward movement and disentangles himself from the deceptive Neptune. In other words, you can expect clarity to appear and you should soon begin to have a much clearer sense of where you’re going and what you need to do. You’re also likely to be very receptive to inspiring ideas, which you should act on. Now is the time for you to join forces with others, connecting with people who share your vision and who want to make a difference. Now is the time to unleash your inner rebel and become a mover and a shaker, changing the world bit by bit with your innovative ideas and inspiration.
Cancer: Jupiter is on hand to help you lovingly release anything that you no longer need, so this is one time in your life when you don’t need to fight with yourself when it comes to letting go and embracing the future. It is time now to take your ideas and begin implementing them in the world at large. You are likely to be feeling rather dynamic in terms of your future, your career and your life direction and far less inclined than normal to let yourself be held back by fear, doubt or the needs of others. It may be that you decide to forge ahead on your own path, or it may be that you decide to join forces with others. If the latter, you will be more successful if you can allow each other to be without needing to control, manipulate or become overly embroiled within each other. Give others space and freedom to do things their way while insisting on the same in return. Then whatever it is that you’re creating will be more successful for your individual roles and talents.
Leo: If in recent weeks you’ve been feeling as though you’ve been trapped in an underground maze, then this is the week when you will see the chink of light up ahead and begin to climb the stairs to your freedom. There’s no doubt that you will have learned an important lesson, been privy to a valuable insight that has facilitated change, or experienced some kind of transformation or rebirth. Now your optimism is beginning to return and perhaps whatever experiences you’ve acquired recently can be fuel for your fire to get things moving. You still need to be wary of the motivations of other people, which may not all be sweetness and light, so trust your inner voice if you feel unsure about someone, and then, because this has been quite a heavy time, go and do a few light-hearted things. Do whatever lifts you out of a heavy heart and restores your inspiration and faith in life.
Virgo: The theme of projection is most likely to emerge this week and although it will have been evident during the past few weeks, it is only now that you are likely to be able to see it clearly and understand that your emotional responses were due to unresolved issues within yourself. It’s likely that other people have been holding up mirrors reflecting parts of yourself that it was time for you to acknowledge. At times this wasn’t comfortable, but now as Mercury turns direct, the confusion and emotional upset turns to clarity and harmony. Much healing can take place in your relationships now if you are willing to move things forward and the keys to this healing can be found in compassion, loving kindness, forgiveness and especially, being able to see yourself and others as they really are.
Libra: Whatever physical problems you may be dealing with and whatever remedies and techniques you might have tried to improve your well-being, there is one simple thing that seems to be the key to your health right now, and that is love. In fact, this is always the key to glowing health, yet very few people seem to recognize that. Instead we look to others to make us better and struggle, often in vain, to find what we need to make ourselves better. Don’t overlook the power of love to transform your physical state. If you are experiencing discord with someone, try to resolve it, since –especially for you as a Libran –emotional conflict can have a huge impact on your well-being. Make more time for the people who matter to you and strive to eliminate anger and distance from all your relationships. You will be amazed at the results both physically and mentally and you will not believe how much better you feel in every way.
Scorpio: While the planets are still activating your fun and enjoyment area, making this another week to do more of what you love and indulge your pleasures and passions, there is also a growing need to look at your health and your work. These two spheres could become quite volatile perhaps resulting in exhaustion or conflict at work. The way to avoid these difficulties is to adopt a patient attitude. The more you try to get done, or the more you rush or feel under pressure, the more likely you are to slip up in one form or another. Be patient and allow things to unfold at their own pace. Even if you have loads to do, adopting a mindful attitude and putting your full attention on what you’re doing while finding ways to enjoy even the most mundane of tasks, will miraculously give you all the time you need to get everything done.
Sagittarius: If the recent past has seemed rather heavy, then this is the point at which the light and joy begin to return. You might be feeling like you’ve had enough of the heaviness and decide to kick back by doing something fun. In fact, you could seem a little controversial or your behavior might appear a bit strange or unusual to others, but don’t be deterred from doing what you intuitively feel is right for you. There is still a strong emphasis on your family situation and all the complexities that involves, so a little light relief is probably what you need. Romantic pursuits, creative pastimes, and fun with others will create a healthy balance with whatever is going on at home. Remember to offer your unconditional love to any person or situation that needs it and that too will lighten a heavy load.
Capricorn: Over the past few weeks the planets have been urging you to question your view of life. Maybe you came up against someone who takes a very different view, and that person could have left an impression or caused you to feel irritated. None of us finds it easy to change the way we see things, but if you’ve been feeling down for no apparent reason, or found yourself saying things you wouldn’t normally say or thinking thoughts you wouldn’t normally think, then perhaps there is a shift trying to take place. The question is, are you staying stuck in an old paradigm when you really need to be shifting? If you are staying within an unsatisfactory situation because you can’t foresee a change or a way out, the planets are intimating that you’re worth more than you’ve been settling for and it’s time to shake things up a bit and let your playful inner child out to show you the way.
Aquarius: Comparing ourselves unfavorably to others is usually a pointless and self-defeating exercise, but sometimes it can have a positive side that comparison results in your feeling motivated to change. Maybe you’ve been feeling a bit down on yourself lately, and maybe you’re looking at other people whom you think might be making more of a success of life than you. If so, use this as leverage to change your situation. Mars and Uranus are busy shaking up your thought processes, encouraging you to see things differently. Now is the time to think outside the box and use your creativity and ingenuity to manifest success in your life. Sometimes all that’s needed is a change of attitude. At other times, a more disciplined approach may be called for. Either way, it’s time to change your outlook and realize that you can do what you love and manifest greater abundance in your life.
Pisces: Over the course of this week, the planets will gradually begin leaving your sign, which in a way will be good news for you since the hectic pace of life will begin to slow and you can resume normality again. Venus, Neptune, Chiron and Mercury will remain enabling you to enjoy a little pleasure, rest and relaxation. Since Mercury is still retrograde in your sign, there may be an element of frustration in your life. Perhaps things aren’t moving in the way that you would like or perhaps you feel stuck or restricted. Try not to hold any negative feelings in but work to release your frustrations in a healthy way. You may benefit from time alone this week in order to confront the less than desirable elements of yourself or your life, but remember that this will soon pass and when Mercury turns direct on March 18 you can begin to make progress once again.
